What the school says...

Maple Walk, judged excellent in all areas (ISI Inspection, March 2020), is a happy, vibrant prep school for boys and girls aged 4-11 in north west London, nurturing children's wellbeing and academic best through fun, kindness and respect for one another.

We provide a safe, supportive and stimulating environment with small class sizes for outstanding learning and personal development where children flourish, developing self-confidence, self-esteem and social awareness.

Maple Walk is committed to giving every child an excellent value, first-class education in the arts and sciences, traditional academic subjects.
